    Just read 1984 by George Orwell. Spotted the coolest Radiohead reference in there.

    This Doesn't Deserve Its Own Thread - Radiohead Edition

    Ill Wind is superb. OK, it recycles a few old Radiohead ideas, like the rhythm from Dollars and Cents and the ondes + ebow from Where I End and You Begin. But the middle sequence with the synthesiser modulating all over the fucking place is classic Radiohead in the best way. Sinister, funny, surprising, satisfying. The minor-to-major shifts are such a calling card of theirs and this is one of the best uses of it. Oh, that moment when it plunges down at 2:12 is chilling. I often think that moaning about B-sides being left off albums is a rather indulgent wanky thing to do. Yes, we all love The Daily Mail but it doesn't belong on TKOL regardless of quality. But I can't fathom why Ill Wind was left off in favour of at least a few mediocre MSP tracks. It fits. It rules.

    I already follow that guy on Twitter. Fucked up, man.

    Wait, what the fuck? That's VPC? I listened to their Pink Floyd episode a while ago.

    I haven't bothered with it. In my imagination it's a cocktail of nerd fawning and bad lyrical readings (as you suggest there). What would make an interesting podcast would be a bunch of musically literate people who disagree strongly on Radiohead songs all arguing about the pros and cons of everything with some passion and intelligence. You need people to say "no, this sucks" as well as "Radiohead are geniuses" for interesting discussions to take place. (This is one of several dozen reasons why r/Radiohead is so godawful.)

    That's what he sings.

    INCREDIBLE TRIVIA: The phrase "moon on a stick", which appears in Lotus Flower, originated as a catchphrase in the 90s comedy show Fist of Fun (starring Stewart Lee and Richard Herring). But I doubt it's where Thom heard it first.

    It reminds them of Radiohead. That's all you have to do on Reddit, just post things that remind you of Radiohead.

    Colin would be the man to write a book about Radiohead. He has a degree in literature from Cambridge and writes book reviews for newspapers. That said, the lack of hyphenation in "A Moon Shaped Pool" hints at a generally low standard of literacy in the Radiohead camp. And I still have nightmares over Jonny's use of semicolons in the blog post announcing In Rainbows.

    Someone has responded to the tweet with this: Nigel Godrich, New York Times, 9 March 2012: "They all just sort of burst into giggles, because they couldn’t do what he’d written, because it was impossible — or impossible for them, anyway."

    Fucking loled at Nigel's meltdown. The page is sourced entirely to quotes from him and the band (and good sources too, BBC, Rolling Stone etc, not fan sites).

    The spelling is actually "whoops". Educate yourself before posting again please. Unbelievable.

    Italo, mate, forgive me, but I am baffled by this post. "Ed was very adamant to give a time frame" - what? this means Ed insisted on giving a time frame. Do you mean he was reluctant to give a time frame? "It won't be soon" - what won't be soon? Solo album? LP10? Tour? "Going on a limb" - the phrase is "going out on a limb" and it means to take a risk on your own. You mean you're just speculating, right?

    Do Radiohead really still use Courtyard? They've had their own studio since the mid-90s.
